The world knows Astor Piazzolla as the great innovator of Argentine tango, who transformed the original dance style into new, large-scale compositions. Many other musicians have also cultivated Tango Nuevo. In addition to Piazzolla, we will perform works by two of the best: Horacio Salgán, who will turn 101 shortly after our concerts, and Luis Bacalov, widely recognized for the film Il Postino's Oscar-winning score. Bacalov's Tango Mass will bring our 2016-17 season to a dazzling close.
